To our Just Float Family,

As our world moves into a period of heightened safety awareness concerning the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we at Just Float want to directly address the importance of immune health, stress reduction, the highest-levels of cleanliness, and how floatation therapy is one of several crucial tools you can use to support yourself during this stressful time.

* CDC Says Floatation Tanks are SAFE from Corona Virus Infection/Spread. 

* In light of current events, immune system strength is more important than ever. Floating is a powerful ally in that battle. 

* Just Float is staying on top of the situation, and is one of the cleanest and well-maintained communial spaces in Los Angeles. 

* In order to ensure highest standards of safety, any client or staff showing any signs of illness will be asked to remain off-premises. Floating is preventative, not curative. 

 

Meditation based therapies like floating and a regular meditation practice have been scientifically shown to strengthen both immune systems and overall health.  

 

Additionally, we encourage all our clients, family, and friends to continue living healthy lifestyles of eating high quality nutritious food, regular exercise, daily meditation, Wim-Hof breathing, increased hand washing, and avoiding touching your face.

As you choose which businesses to interact with during this time, we understand you may have questions about the safety of floating and our facility disinfection processes. Rest assured, Just Float is exceeding industry wide standards. Our regular cleaning routines provide a powerful defense against all contagious illnesses and we have implemented new facility cleaning protocols and increased existing ones to keep our clients and staff safe from any disease transmission as best we can. 

The CDC has released this official statement :There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools or hot tubs.  Proper operation, amintenance, and disinfection of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”  Additionally, Dr. Roy Vore, a microbial physiologist with the CDC, specializing in the management of recreational waters and the safety and efficacy of float tank systems has stated that the Corona Virus “is not spread in water, such as float water”.

We at Just Float pride ourselves on our level of industry leading cleanliness. Between every float our water is filtered and sanitized using 16 feet of ultraviolet lights, and 35% industrial-grade hydrogen peroxide. Additionally, the high-saline solution has proven resistant in lab tests to almost every living organism.  We clean every suite between each guest, sanitizing all surfaces that people touch with safe and highly effective Simple Green PROD-5 (a food-safe industrial disinfectant used in both hospitals and food packaging facilities). Throughout the day we also regularly disinfect all common areas of Just Float, including door handles, tablets, countertops, bathroom areas, etc.

As always, providing a safe, clean, supportive environment for our clients is our highest priority.

Finally, if you are feeling ill, please stay home. Floating is to aid in the prevention of illness, not curative once you are sick.

If you have any questions, please reach out, we are here to support you!
